I don't believe that those who carry the peace sign and sing about it use it in this way or even knew about this but the sad fact is that it shows just how frickin' ignorant a society we are that we do not even know the origins of so much of what we say and do.
I realized this about US many years ago when I was very good friends with a Mexican exchange student. She would constantly ask me about the history of words or the symbolism behind things we did or our forefathers did or said and I couldn't answer her and didn't even know whey she was asking me. She would then go on to tell me about why a word or phrase was used in her country and really go into depth on the history of the phrase or thing.
Thank you Steven Crowder!
